(Today and Tonight)
Main area of convection has pushed east of the area early this

Numerous outflow boundaries remain across West Central Texas. These
boundaries will once again act as a focus for afternoon and evening
convection, especially across the Heartland and Hill Country where
low level instability will be maximized. Will add slight chance POPs
for the late afternoon and evening hours. Low level thermal fields
are slowly warming and this has been reflected in slowly warming
high temperatures. More of the same for today with highs approaching
the 100 degree mark across the central and western Concho Valley.

ridge expands eastward with 30-31C 850 MB temperatures across the

highs a couple degrees across the Big Country, due to moisture
and green vegetation, but most areas will still reach 99 to 102

thermal ridge pushes back west and winds become more southernly.
Isolated, mainly late afternoon and evening thunderstorms are
possible Friday/Saturday with weak upper disturbances in zonal
Slightly cooler temperatures, with highs in the lower 90s
expected Monday and Tuesday. An upper shortwave moves will across
Central Plains, and could produce some thunderstorms complexes
